A week ago, I finally tried the Impossible Burger, a veggie burger that’s suppose to taste like real beef.
To me, the burger was… uncomfortably real?
It had a very “meaty” texture, complete with grease drippings.
Back when I ate beef burgers, I shyed away from anything that wasn’t well done. Eating a medium-rare Impossible Burger triggered some of my rare-avoidance instincts.
I had to actively tell myself it’s only a veggie burger. Neat!
I don’t think being “too real” is a flaw in a veggie burger, but I was definitely surprised. I’d grown accustomed to the variety of over-hyped, bland veggie burgers on the market.
The Impossible Burger was different!
At the time, I was a little horrified eating it, but I think I’ll try it again.
Y’all should try it if you haven’t. It is definitely an experience to remember.
